Chief Flight Instructor, Mountain View Helicopters

Curtis' Forest Technician education steered him towards a seasonal job as a fire ranger for the Ministry of Natural Resources, where he spent countless hours flying to and from fires in Bell 205s. This sparked his interest in aviation and, at age 23, he decided to purse a career as a helicopter pilot. After completing his initial training, Curtis was hired by Mountain View Helicopters to fly tours at the Horseshoe Canyon in Drumheller, Alta.

Curtis then landed a job in northern Alberta flying the R44 Helicopter for Gemini Helicopters, mainly in the oil patch. After a couple years, an instructor position became available at MVH. He achieved his Class 1 Instructor Rating in 2008 and, in 2013, took over as Chief Flight Instructor. He now holds type ratings on a wide variety of helicopters.
